The Oyster Dome Trail is a classic route in Blanchard State Forest, just South of Bellingham Washington.  The trail starts off the iconic Chuckanut Drive and climbs 2000ft in just over 3 miles to the Oyster Dome Summit.  From the Summit you have an outstanding view over looking Samish Bay and into the San Jan Islands.  The trail consists of both technical and non-technical sections as well as some steep inclines.  During the winter months you'll find plenty of water sources and possible snow at the top but during the summer the dry is mostly dry.
